that possibly dzhokhar tsarnaev is coming back to consciousness and able to communicate with investigators. it all goes back to "usa today" report citing anonymous law enforcement source but if the information hashings out it is certainly significant, the fact he is able to communicate with investigators by writing. he can't speak because as you mentioned there is a gunshot wound either to the neck or jaw or both but he is able to write according to this report and the answers providing to questions are described as substantive. what know from the information the answers he is providing indicates there is not a larger network. there is not a second wave planned or a wave people should be fearful of connected to him. again the information, the sourcing on the information just doesn't give me a whole lot of confidence, jenna. jenna: we'll take that interest consideration, mike as you've been on the ground there for the past several days. we see the flowers behind you and tell us where you are and when will the area around the blast site be reopened to the public? >> reporter: this is copley

hospital bed with conspireing to use weapons of mass destruction. 19-year-old dzhokhar zorn yef s tsarnaev is charged with malicious destruction of property resulting in death. the charges could carry the death penalty. after much speculation, the white house explained today why tsarnaev will not be prosecuted as an enemy combatant. >> he will not be treated as an enemy combatant. we will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice. under u.s. law the united states citizens can not be tried in military commissions. and it is important to remember that since 9/11, we have used the federal court system to convict and incarcerate hundreds of terrorists. >> tsarnaev now lies under armed guard unable to speak due to what may be a self-inflicted gunshot wound in his neck. authorities continue to question him, relying on written answers at this point. but his answers may be somewhat less important in his prosecution given the volume of evidence in the federal complaint, including description of video after the first explosion. "bomber two virtually alone among the individuals
of massachusetts at dartmouth where the younger tsarnaev was enrolled told nbc's jeff rossen that dzhokhar actually discussed the bombings at the gym the day after they took place. >> i talked to him about normal things going on in the day. i talked to him about how it was crazy we had a bombing in boston. >> you said that to him, talked about the bombing? >> yeah. he said it's really sad it's happening, it's a sad thing. it happens around the world, people here aren't used to it. >> reporter: he said it's sad? >> he said it's sad. looked me straight in the eye and said that. >> officials tell nbc federal charges will include a description of a still unreleased fbi video of the suspect putting his back pac down at the site of the second bombing and then acting very differently from those around him when the first bomb went off. >> this suspect took the backpack off, put it down. did not react when the first explosion went off. and then moved away from the backpack in time for the second explosion. >> now, bringing charges in federal court would end the contentious debate that's played out over the
're live in e eldorado, texas. at this hour, the justice department is preparing charges for dzhokhar tsarnaev. meanwhile there's a lot of talk on the sunday morning shows about the investigation. let's take a look at some of the comments from this morning in this sunday night edition of our quotes of the week. boston mayor tom menino has wrapped up the entire boston bombing case into one sound bite in abc's "this week." >> all the information i have is they acted alone, these two individuals, the brothers. the older brother is dead now. we have a second one at beth israel hospital in very serious condition. we don't know if we'll ever be able to question the individual. >> mike: don't know if that sounds familiar, but seems like after every major crime, whether it's the kennedy assassination, the assassination of martin luther king jr., we always are pretty quick to come out and say that it was the lone nut, in this case it's a couple of them. now the truth is we don't know if they were the only ones involved. not at this point. there were some news reports that said, oh, they were a
and low financing are available right now during the polaris xp sales event. >> mike: dzhokhar tsarnaev has been portrayed as a nice guy, somebody that wouldn't hurt a fly, even a follower of his demanding older brother. is he being portrayed as a victim before he even gets to trial. we're back with judge andrew napolitano. judge, you expect the defense will say, it wasn't his fault, he was just a kid, his brother duped him into it. is that going to be effective given the heinous nature of the crime? >> i do expect the defense would say -- it's called a defense of diminished capacity, yeah, he did this, but wasn't of clear mind when he did it, led along by somebody else, somebody else was actually controlling his will, not in a zombie-like way, but because of his relationship to his brother. will it work? depends on the jury. if it does work, it would save him from execution. he could still be convicted of some lesser offense than use of a weapon of mass destruction to kill people, but he'd go to jail for the rest of his life rather than be executed. >> mike: i can only imagine the outr
the street. what they say they can see on the camera is the person identified as dzhokhar tsarnaev come into the view with his backpack on. he work his way into the crowd. he is talking on a cell phone. he appears to take the backpack off. then they say you can see the backpack at his feet in still photographs. then according to this video which the fbi has not released. this is merely a narrative description of it. the first bomb goes off. you can see everyone in the crowd that says except him. virtually everyone in the crowd look toward the first scene of the bombing. and he does not. he calmly waits, glances down eventually and then walks away about 10 to 13 seconds before the second bomb goes off which the fbi says he has just left on the ground. that's the first point. we learnt in the criminal complain, the most detailed description yet for the fbi. the key piece of video and photographs from all that material that they collected. the second point. they say both bombs in the marathon bombing were made from pressure cooker using a similar formula of low power explosive, bbs with ad

there is something being confused by a lot of folks. if you were to name dzhokhar tsarnaev an enemy combatant, that does not necessarily mean he goes to it now -- to gitmo. you can name him an enemy combatant for purposes of interrogation. after the interrogation is completed, you can transfer him back to the criminal justice system. all that happens is the information you've gotten from him during the time he is an enemy combatant would not be admissible in a court of law. you do not use it for that. you do not use it for criminal prosecution. use it for intelligence. use it to unravel terrorism that may be ongoing and learn more about terrorist groups that are in this country and elsewhere plotting against us. i've got to tell you, it is a red herring to say, i do not want a military tribunal. by the way -- guest: no one is saying that. guest: i've heard others say, this is all about getting him to gitmo. the priority should be to get information from him. or should there -- there could be other ways to do it. the public safety exception allows -- host: we will get to that -- hist: what thi
-old dzhokhar tsarnaev, who is about to be charged probably later this week? guest: it certainly well within the cards. if he is convicted, what will be the fifth largest act of terrorism in the united states, then went on to be involved in the murder of another law enforcement official, and then went on to throw improvised explosive devices out of two cars, one of which was a carjacked vehicle. this is an extraordinary example of violence. depending on evidence, which i certainly have no inside knowledge of, this has the potential to go to trial. host: one day after the bombings took place, the other was killed in that shooting in watertown, massachusetts, the center public and later mitch mcconnell had this to say on the senate floor tuesday. [video clip] >> these attacks are a grim reminder of the hatred and contempt of the many continue to harbor in their hearts not only for our nation and its freedoms, but for innocent human life. on 9/11 we were forever disabused of the notion that attacks such as the one that brought boston only happened on the field of battle or in distant countries.
